INGS STUDYING BOBBY
Danny Ings has stated that his Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino has been his role model for the past few months. The former Burnley man is hoping to be involved at the weekend, and if you are thinking of going to the match you can find cheap Liverpool tickets at footballtickets compare.
Ings, who has missed the majority of the last two seasons with injuries has been back in first-team training for a while now and has made it clear who he has been studying in training since his return.
The former Burnley striker, talking to Liverpoolfc.com, said: “From the moment I started training back with the lads, I tried to learn every day – especially from Bobby.
“He is a fantastic player with the way he plays and the amount of work he does for the team, not just on the ball but off the ball as well.”
Manager Jurgen Klopp refused to sanction a loan move for Ings in the last transfer window and with Daniel Sturridge now out on loan at West Bromwich Albion the England international could well find himself clocking up some appearances in the run-in to the end of the season.
EGYPTIAN KING OF THE GOALS
Mohammed Salah has been revelling in hitting the 30 goal mark but is vying for more before the end of the season.
Salah, a summer signing from Roma, netted his 30th goal of the season in the 5-0 win over Porto in the Champions League, which is a fantastic achievement for a winger, however, the Egyptian is not done there.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Salah said: “It is a great feeling to have scored 30 goals in a first season at a club like Liverpool.
“Its something huge, so I am very happy about it – but I have to carry on and keep looking forward to score many more goals.”
GRUJIC IMPRESSING ON LOAN
Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic has been receiving some high praise from his current manager Neil Warnock at Cardiff City.
Grujic joined the Championship promotion chasers on loan in January and Warnock has been talking about how well the Serb has improved in recent games.
Warnock stated: “He’s not getting caught in possession as much now. He’s realising how quick it is, especially in your own half. If you dwell on the ball in the Championship it’s too late.
“I think he’s got more strengths to his bow. He’s made us play a bit more, he’s got quite good vision and he’s been very good in the air for us as well so he’s growing into it.”
STONEY LEAVING FOR ENGLAND
Casey Stoney will be leaving Liverpool Ladies to take up a role in the England women’s national team as a part of new manager Phil Neville’s backroom team.
Stoney, 35, will depart after Wednesday’s clash with Sunderland AFC Ladies, calling time on her career which also saw her play for Arsenal and Chelsea.
Stoney joined Liverpool in December 201 and has earned 130 caps for England.
